C. Durham read report of Board of Missions and Sunday- 
Schools, as follows: 

SIXTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MIS- 
SIONS AND SUNDAY-SCHOOLS. 

The Board, here at the base of its operations for the past quarter of a 
century, cordialU' welcome the Convention to Raleigh, and expresses 
its gratitude to God for His abundant blessings which have attended 
your work during the years that are past. 

The Convention is no stranger in this city. Since 1844, the first ses- 
sion in the Capital City of the State, its annual meetings have been 
held here, on an average of once in every four years. In no place has it 
been held more frequently, and by no people has it been entertained 
more cheerfully. Some of its most important sessions, most marked in 
liberality and spirituality, have been held in this city. No session, per- 
haps, ever had such influence on the denomination as the one held here 
in 1856, when about $61,000 was raised for the various objects, and the 
first 150,000 endowment of Wake Poorest College was completed. 

We most siucerelj' pray that this session may be the best in its influ- 
ence for the glory of our God in the historj- of the Convention. 

THK DEBT. 

As we entered the Conventional year at Goldsboro with an indebted- 
ness of two thousand dollars on our State Mission Department, and an 
obligation, voluntarily assumed at a former Convention, to pay five 
thousand dollars towards the " Havana House," thus requiring the sum 
of seven thousand dollars additional to that needed in the regular work 
of the year, it was hardlj' expected, even under the most favorable 
circumstances, that the Board would be able to enlarge its work and 
come to this session without debt. 

Then, the year, too, as all know, through which we have just passed, 
has been most trying, and the real obstacles many and formidable, but, 
here to-day, we raise our Ebenezer, and say with grateful hearts, "Hith- 
erto hath the Lord helped us." 



16 MINUTES OF THE 

DEATH. 

During the past year a number of our brethren in the ministry have 
been called to their reward. We cannot forbear naming some of them 
who have been the faithful missionaries of our Board, viz. : 

T. B. Justice, of Rutherfordton, in his 79th 5 ear. 

J. J. James, of Caswell County, in his 78th year. 

J. A. Hill, of Waxhaw, in his 74th year. 

W. M. Kennedy, of Warsaw, in his 67th year. 

W. J. Wilkie, of Rutherford County, in his 63d year. 

A. W. Price, of Wadesboro, in his 34th year. 

J. L. Cottingham, of Williams' Mills, in his 31st jear. 

A. T. Denney, of Person County, in his 24th year. 

These were the Lord's servants. They toiled on to the end, then 
peacefully fell on sleep, and were gathered with the L,ord. Their death 
reminds us of our mortality'. Let us be stimulated by their life and 
quickened by their death to greater consecration and diligence in efforts 
to give the gospel to the destitute and to brighter thoughts of the meet- 
ings and the greetings in the presence of our Lord. 

Servants of God, well done; 

Rest from thy loved employ, 
The battle fought, the victor}- won. 

Enter thy Master's joy. 

Soldiers of Christ, well done! 

Praise be thy new employ. 
And, while eternal ages run. 

Rest in thy Saviour's joy.

IS MINUTKS OF THE 

NEW ASSOCIATION. 

Some of the churches iu the Cedar Creek and Cape Fear Associations, 
at their last session, received letters of dismission to form the Bladen 
County Association. This new body was formed in Bladen County 
November, 1S92. 

UNION. 

During the year, the Richmond and Anson Associations have ar- 
ranged to form one body. This Union is to be effected in January. 

The Cape Fear and Columbus Associations, each, at their last session, 
took preliminary steps towards a union of their Associations into one 
body. This union is to be effective next month. 

Then, there are, in the minds of brethren interested, propositions to 
unite other Associations next year. It would seem, from the results of 
our work and the number of Associations in the States on our borders, 
that our brethren have made a mistake in the organization of so many 
small Associations. In South Carolina they have thirty-four white 
\ssociations, and in Virginia only twenty-three, while in this State, for 
the two Conventions, there are fifty-five. Let us study the thmgs that 
make for the growth, the training and the efficiency of our cluuches 
and Associations. 

GROWTH.. 

The .growth of the Baptists in this country during the past twenty years 
has be^n more rapid than the growth of the population. The popula- 
tion of the United States has not doubled in the past twenty years, but 
the Baptist membership has more than doubled during that time. In 
iS-2 the total number of Baptists in the United States was about 1,489,- 
o«>, now it is about 3,500.000; then the Baptists numbered one in every 
twenty-six of the population, now one in twenty. 

\ very lar<^e per cent, of the increase in our country's population has 
come through immigration. This has not been helpful to the number of 
Baptists in this countrv, but almost entirely to the advantage of other 
denominations. When this is remembered the growth of the Baptists is 
the more remarkable. 

The total amount of property and endowments belonging to the Bap- 
tist Colleges and Theological Seminaries in the United States in 1872 
was $3 467,000; now it is 129.000,000. The growth of the Baptists in our 
own State has been more marked than in any other State in the country. 
About one in every six of our entire population in this State is a member 
of a Baptist Church. This growth will appear the more remarkable 
when we remember the condition of things in the midst of which 
our fathers began their work, and the combination of influences against 
which we have ever had to battle. For thirty years prior to the organi- 



BATTIST STATE COXVKXTION. 19 

zation of their first church in this State in 1727, they were doubtless ac- 
tive in efforts to give the Gospel to the people, but were prevented from 
organizing churches and building houses of worship b}' the oppressive 
laws of the colony. F'or many years after 1727 they were proscribed, not 
allowed to build houses of worship, persecuted, imprisoned and whipped 
for no other crimes than that they were the leading spirits in opposi- 
tion to the union of church and State and the uncompromising advocates 
of civil and religious liberty. 

They saw clearly the path of duty and realized keenly the import- 
ance of their own work — to give the Gospel to the people. This the}' 
endeavored to do. They succeeded. We now have large numbers and 
prosperous churches and institutions, and a constantly widening influ- 
ence for good because of what these, our fathers, were, what thej- did 
aiid what they suffered. 

For many years prior to the organization of this Convention in 1S30, 
our fathers were feeling about for a general organization through which 
they could combine and wisely direct their united efforts to give the gos- 
pel to the people of the State, to educate the rising generations under 
the best religious influences, and to aid in sending out the glad tidings 
to the nations beyond the seas. 

In 1841 Samuel Wait was chairman of the committee to report on State 
Missions. His report says: " State Missions is a work of immense impor- 
tance. If this is suffered to languish, all the others will suffer with it. 
The success of Foreign Missions will be found identified with the success 
of State Missions. We regard State Missions as tlie ground-work and 
support of all other objects of the Convention." 

In 1854 the report of the Board to the Convention said: "State Mis- 
sions is the foundation of ever\- other benevolent enterprise, and upon 
its success depends in a great degree that of Foreign Missions and Edu- 
cation." 

In the report of the Board to the Convention in 186S we find: 

''Resolved, That in the department of State Missions the denomina- 
tion ought to expend not less than tiventy thousand dollars annually." 

These were brave words. For the past twent}' years the Convention 
lias been working towards the high standard set by the "ought " in the 
above resolution. We shall yet reach it. The needs of the field demand 
it. Our people are growing in their appreciation of this work. Its 
results are seen in more than one hundred towns and five hundred coun- 
try neighborhoods in the State. Its influences are felt at Wake Forest, 
Murfreesboro, Oxford and High Point schools, at the Thomasville 
Orphanage, and be3-ond the seas, among the heathen. 

In 1853 the Convention had a committee on "Co-operation of the 
Associations with the Convention." The report in substance was as fol- 
lows: 



20 MINUTES OF THK 

" We mean by co-operation, that each Association should, so fur as 
possible, raise its own funds, select its own missionaries, designate the 
fields in which thej- wish them to labor and recommend to the Hoard 
the amount to be paid, and refer their appointment to the Board of Mis- 
sions, by which they should be commissioned and paid, and to which 
they should report at the end of each quarter. It is, therefore, sin- 
cerely hoped that every Association will allow its missionaries to be 
appointed by the Board, so that there may be union, concert and h.ir- 
mony in all of our operations." 

This report has guided the Associations, Executive Comniittcis and 
the Board through all of the thirty-nine years since its adoption. The 
basis of co-operation has never been changed. The Executive Commit- 
tees and the Board have, therefore, supplied the destitution as rapidly as 
the means at their command have enabled them to do. 

KKsri/rs ov thi.s vk.\r's work. 
These results can only be indicated in part b}- the following fiyures: 

Sermons .- 11,486 

Mission churches supplied 22S 

Out stations supplied 427 

Baptisms 1,142 

Added by letter 1,29^ 

Churches organized 62 

Sunday schools organized 9.^ 

Houses of worship finished and occupied ._- _- 28 

Cost of these 28 houses of worship fS^.'ioo 

Houses of worship being built — --., 87 

Many of the places aided this year have become self-sustaining and 
will no longer need the aid of the Board. Some of these houses of wor- 
ship have cost |6oo, some #800, some ^1,000, some |i, 200, some 5i,5<'if>, 
and some 52,000. The average cost has been about 5', 200. Thus it will 
be seen that the church property acquired for the denomination through 
this department is worth more than doiible the cost of the entire State 
Mission work for the year. All estimates of State Missions whicli ignore 
this item are painfully defective. 

THK Ki 11 Kl.. 

Ri'solied, That Slate INIissions is a work of vital and transcendent 
in)portance, and should be wisely and vigorously prosecuted by our 
Board till a self-sustaining Baptist church shall be established in easy 
reach of every person in North Carolina. 

Resolved 2. That, in order to carry out the al ove ri solution, as speed- 
ily as possible, every Association, church and individual member, be 
urged to aid liberally in the work by their prayers and coiitribulions. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVEN'TIOX. "21 

INSTITUTE FOR THE COLORED PREACHERS. 

The Convention, at its last session, passed the following: 

'' Kesolved, That we request the churches connected with this Con- 
vention to give one collection dnring the Conventional year to aid our 
colored brethren in mission work and ministerial education, and that 
this money be expended through our Board of Missions." 

The Board, after much investigation and due consideration, believing 
tlie churches would furnish the needed means, arranged for ten Institutes 
to be held during the summer. An appropriation of fifty dollars was 
made to each Institute. These were held, and each one was continued 
from ten to fifteen days. The}' were well attended by the preachers and 
others in sections .where they were held. 

After consultation with the Board of Missions of the colored Baptist 
State Convention, the professors of Shaw University, and other judicious 
interested brethren, our Board arranged the ^following 

Pi ogramuie for the Ten histitutes. 

1. Elizabeth City, to begin May 3r, Professor A. A. Smith, of Shaw 
University; Rev. N. \V. D. Newman (col.), pastor at Plymouth, and Rev. 
C. A. G. Thomas, of Elizabeth City. 

2. Cliatiotte, to begin July 9, Professor A. A. vSmith and Rev. A. G. 
.McManaway and Rev. D. M. Austin, of Charlotte. 

,\ U'eldoii, to begin July 11, Rev. P. F. Maloy (col.). State Missionary; 
Rlv. p.. I. Walden (col.), of Weldon, and Rev. T. J. Taylor of Warrenton. 

/. irinton, to begin July 19, Rev. J. A. Whitted (col.), Principal Normal 
School, Warrenton; Rev. Luke Pierce (col.), pastor at Winton, and Rev. 
Thuni is Wood, of Murfreesboro. 

5. Roxlwro, to begin July 26, Professor A. W. Pegues (col.), of Shaw 
University; Rev. R. H. Harris (col.', pastor at Milton, and Rev. J. J. 
Lansdell, of Roxboro. 

6. Greensboro, to begin July 26, Rev. P. S. Lewis (col. ), pastor at Salis- 
bury; Rev. J. J. Worlds (col.), pastor at Raleigh. 

7. Roctiingham, to begin July 29, Professor A. A. Smith, Rev. P. F. 
Maloy (col.) and Rev. L. Johnson, of Rockingham. 

.V. Magnolia, to begin August 2, Professor A. W. Pegues (col.), Rev. 
I. iSI. Powers (col.), pastor at Wallace, and Rev. O. P. Meeks. 

y. IVilmington, to begin August 22, Professor A. A. Smith Rev. 
L. T. Christmas (col.), pastor at Wilmington; Dr. T. H. Pritchard. 

JO. Newbern, to begin June 26, Professor A. A. vSmith, and Rev. Rufus 
Ford, of Newbern. 

The total number of colored preachers attending these Institutes was 
iSi), the average congregation about 2co; the number of lectures and 



22 MINUTES OF THE 

sermons delivered was 245, and the collections for missions amonuted 

to I49-59- 

The Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention united 
with our Board in this work, and has paid one-half the expense of the 
same — $250. 

Some of our judicious pastors who have attended and taken part in 
these Institutes have been greatly pleased with the work done, and think 
the money has been wisely used, and that several j-ears of such work 
will greatly aid the colored preachers and churches of the entire State. 
It seems that most of the pastors and brethren, who, a year ago, voted 
so unanimously and heartil}' for the resolution recommending to the 
churches to give one collection during the year to this w'ork, have not 
acted on their own resolution. The amount received by the treasurer 
for this work has been quite small. The amounts promised the breth- 
ren for doing the work should be paid as speedily as possible, and, if 
the Board is directed to continue the work, the pastors and churches 
should be more mindful of this department. 

HOME MISSIONS. 

The magnitude and importance of the Home ^Mission work of the 
Southern Baptist Convention may be indicated by naming five depart- 
ments. 

INDI.\NS. 

There have been more than forty missionaries during the year, closing 
May I, 1892, laboring in the Indian Territory and Oklahoma. The 
Levering School has passed into the hands of the Creek Nation. There 
are civilized tribes among these Indians. The work of evangelizing the 
Indians has been largely accomplished. The demand for Christian de- 
velopment and education is now upon them. This seems to be a 
doomed race, and whatever is done for them must be done quickh*, or 
the opportunity to give the gospel to this people will be closed forever. 

2. FOREIGN POPUL.\TlOX. 

with 800,000 Germans in Mi.ssouri, and with a large foreign population 
in Texas and Louisiana, and with a reasonable probability of the in- 
crease of this element in our population in the most of the Southern States 
in the near future, this becomes an exceedingly important department 
in the work of the Home Board. 



This beautiful island, with perhaps a larger population than our own 
beloved State, all open to the gospel as our representatives preach 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 23 

it, aud a Baptist niembersbip of more than two thousand souls, bid us 

enlarge our forces there and reap the harvest already prepared by the 

Lord for us. 

4. COLORED PEOPLE. 

This is a most difficult work. It must not, however, be neglected be- 
cause of its troublesome environments. Seven million of these people 
are amoug us. Their need, first of all, is the gospel, then Christian 
training and education will prepare them for the work God has for 

them to do. 

5. N.\TIVE WHITE PEOPLE. 

Nowhere in the world, perhaps, in all of the centuries, has there been 
a larger native Baptist population, in proportion to the total native 
population, as now live in the States embraced by the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention. There are some States iu the vSouth where our Baptist 
people are yet too few in number and too poor in purse to take advan- 
tage of the opening providences to give the gospel even to the native 
white people. Then, there are a number of cities opening up to us the 
most inviting and hopeful fiields. These are centers of great possibili- 
ties. Here the population, the energy and wealth of our country are 
largely centered. To fish successfully we must put in where the fish 
are. The vSavior made the Apostles fishers of men by sending them 
mainly to the great cities. Cities without the gospel, and hence with- 
out purity in the home life, become the great sources of corruption and 
danger, both to the State aud the churches; but with the go.spel, in its 
simplicity and power, become in our day, as in the apostolic age, the 
centres of radiating gospel light to the ends of the earth. 

In very many of our Southern cities are found the widest fields for 
the operation of our Home Board. These should be occupied as rapidly 
as possible. 

The results of the work done through this Board, for the year ending 
May I, 1892, can.only be indicated by the following, viz: 

Missionaries 365 

Weeks of Labor " 10,640 

Churches and stations I1324 

Sermons and addresses 46,866 

Prayer meetings 14,042 

Baptisms 5.274 

Received by letter 5-973 

Total additions -_- 11,785 

vSunday- -chools organized - 34*2 

Teachers and pupils 17,785 

Religious visits 54, 336 

Churches constituted 179 

Houses of worship built 80 

Bibles aud Testaments 4,304 

Pages and tracts distributed 919,472 

This is a gre- work, and in it the Board should have our hearty co- 
operation. 



24 MIXL'TKS OF THE 



FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

■'All the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God," said 
Isaiah, the great mission prophet of the Old Testament, hundreds of 
vears before Jesus came in human form. This was the Spirit's proclama- 
tion of a great fact. Jesus himself, in his last great command, told us 
how this result would be accomplished — "Go ye " — "teach all nations." 
The gos]iel, making known the salvation of God brought to the world 
in his Son, is to be given to the nations through the "going" and the 
"teaching" of the Lord's people. Here opportunit\' offered is duty 
imposed, and duty discharged is prophecy fulfilled, the Savior obeyed, 
the go.spel sent abroad, and the w-orld redeemed. If, therefore, offered 
opportunities are to be embraced, imposed duties discharged, enlarged 
usefulness lived, and our Savior glorified by us in this life, Christ's mis- 
sion and consecration, Christ's love and joyful obedience, Christ's Spirit 
and power must possess us iu our work. " Not by might, nor by power, 
but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts," needs to be realized now, as 
in the past, as God's voice calling us into fellowship with him.

Note. — Letters addressed to our missionaries in China should be endorsed via San 
Francisco. Those to .Africa, 2'ia Ensjland. Postage to each of our missions is fze 
cents, e.vcept in Me.icico, which is two cents. 

These are the messengers of our churches in Pagan and Papal fields 
through whom we are, by prayers and contributions, trying to make 
known to the people in darkness the way of salvation. For, if all men 
are sinners, and the atoning death of Jesus Christ is the only remedy for 
siu, the Holy Spirit the only physician to make known the nature, ten- 
dency and ruin of sin and the one only remedy for it, and faith in Jesus 
Christ, as a personal Savior, is the only medium through which sinners 
are united in salvation to God, we conclude that all men without the 
gospel are withoi>t the hope of salvation — without God in the world — 
doomed — loiit— forever lost. 

One of the objects, therefore, before our divine Redeemer, in com- 
manding his people to give the gospel to all the nations, was that those 
who heard might be saved — saved from sin — saved from hell — saved in 
heaven. Our Lord's desire and expectation of what his people would do 
is seen in His command and in the nature and importance of the work 
committed to their hands. If a human being, therefore, could come 
from some sinless planet and visit this world, and see it as it is, he would 
doubtless be greatly surprised to know what God, in the gift and death of 
His Son, had done to destroy sin, and most of all, as he dwelt upon man's 
ruin, would he be surprised to know how little Christian people are doing 
to make known God's only and all-sufficient remedy for sin to the Papal 
and Pagan nations of the earth.

IJAl'TIST STATE COXVEXTIOX. 27 

MISSIONARIES FROM NORTH CAROIJNA. 

China. 

South China — G W. Greene and Mrs. Greene. 

Central China— Mrs. Yates, E. F. Tatum and Mrs. Tatum, J. C. 
Britton and Mrs. Britton, L. N. Cliappell and Mrs. Chappell, R. T. Bryan 
and Mrs. Byrau. Brother and Sister Byran have recently been trans- 
ferred from Chinkiang to Shanghai. 

North China — Miss Fannie Knight. 



Matehiiala — Mrs. Chastain. 
Gandalajara — Mrs. Duggan. 

AFRICA. 

Lagos — C. C. Newton, Mrs. Newton and Miss Alberta Newton. 
Brother Newton and family are now, by permission of the Board, spend- 
ing a few months in Liverpool. 

RESIGNATION. 

The resignations of D. W. Herring and wife and G. P. Bostick, mis- 
sionaries from this State in China, greatl}' beloved b}' our people, was a 
surprise and a grief to their brethren throughout the country. 



Soon after the return of Brother and Sister Herring from China to this 
State they had to part with a little daughter, and then, so soon there- 
after, Sister Herring was called to her reward on high, and Brother Her- 
ring to linger with fever for mouths. How strange to us now are some 
of the ways of our Lord. 

NEW MISSIONARIES. 

vSince the session of the Southern Baptist Convention in May last, five 
new missionaries have entered on their work, viz.: S. L. Ginsburg and 
wife, at Bahia, Brazil; E. N. Wolne and wife, in Japan, and Miss Anna 
B. Hartwell in Canton, China. 

MISSIONARIES UNDER APPOINTMENT. 

E. P. Jones is to sail for his field in the spring, and Dr. E. E. Mans- 
field, a missionary physician for China, is to sail soon. 

There are other applications before the Board to go to Mexico, Brazil, 
Japan and Africa. A large increase in our mission forces during the 
next few months is now indicated. 



2S MINUTES OF THE 

EXPECTED VISIT. 

Our aged and much-beloved sister, Mrs. ]M. T. Yates, of Shanghai, 
China, expects to visit her native State in the early spring of '93. It 
will be a great joy to thousands of Baptists in this Stale to meet and 
again welcome her to North Carolina. 

COXGRATUL.^TIONS. 

We congratulate our Foreign Mission Board upon the fact that the 
contributions to its work have doubled each decade since its organiza- 
tion in 1845. Then, too, from May i, iSqi, to December i, 1891, the 
Treasurer of the Foreign Mission Board, Richmond, Virginia, received 
$44,651.42, and between the same dates of this year he received 153,319.56. 
This shows an increase in receipts in these seven months of this ear 
over the same months of last year, for the regular work, of f8.668. 14. 
\Vhile this is not all that might have been done, nor all we had hoped 
would have been done, yet when the conditions and influences with 
which the work has had to contend are fully understood, Ihis increase is 
the most remarkable in the history of the Board, and a cause of grati- 
tude to Cxod for his guiding hand and overruling providences for the fur- 
therance of the gospel. 

THE CKXTENXI.AL OF MODKRX MISSIONS. 

Before the days of William Carey there were spasmodic efforts to give 
the gospel to some parts of the heathen world. But it seems to have 
remained for Carey and his associates to grasp, for the first time since 
the decline of missions in the early churches, the full significance of our 
Lord's last connnand. This was emphasized by their organization for 
aggressive work, and by the departure of Carey and others from England 
for India one hundred years ago. 

The idea most prominently before the Southern Baptist Convention, 
when the first report on this subject was adopted, was to put "one hun- 
dred missionaries in the foreign field— one missionary for each year of 
this missionary era — and to increase correspondingh- every department 
of missionary work." 

This great purpose is to be accomplished by enlarged contributions to 
the regular work, and to this end the Southern Baptist Convention last 
May instructed the Boards— Home and Foreign— "to press the enlarge- 
ment of the regular contributions" to their work. We, therefore, urge 
the brethren not to obscure the first great idea by the elevation of a col- 
lateral and less imi)erative demand. 



P.APTIST STATE CONVEXTrON. 29 

A FUND FOR "PERMANENT WORK." 

As a postscript to the original proposition, the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention at its last session added: " It is recommended that an effort be 
made to raise a permanent Centennial Fund of 1250,000; 1 125,000 each 
for the Foreign and the Home Boards for Bible translation, chapel build- 
ing, a church edifice fund and other permanent work; this to be in addi- 
tion to the proposed sending to the foreign fields during the present 
year one hundred new missionaries and correspondingh- enlarging all 
other departments of our Mission work, as adopted at two previous meet- 
ings of the Convention." 

Of this fnnd for "permanent work " North Carolina has been asked to 
give |i5,0(X) — |;7,50ofor the Home Board and $7,500 for the Foreign Board. 

The "Centennial Committee" was instructed by the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention, in carrying out their plans to secure the ^250,000, " to 
act in conference and concert with the Home and Foreign Boards and 
with the various State Boards." The King's business not only requires 
haste, but also judicious planning, faithful giving, wise direction, and 
united and heroic execution. The best powers and the largest possible 
gifts of the Lord's people should be humbly and joyfully laid at the 
Savior's feet to give the gospel to the perishing world. 

Important as may be the "Centennial Fund," our success here will 
not be " au advance movement in Missions " if this success shall be at 
the expense of the regular work. It should be made clear to the people, 
therefore, on all occasions, that the effort to secure this fund for " per- 
manent work " must not obstruct the contributions to the regular work 
of the Home and Foreign Boards. 

PERSONAL WORK. 

Personal responsibility must be realized. Each individual must act — 
give — be the sole judge of the amount giveu and the direction it is to 
take in Missions. Four months of this Centennial Year now lemain. 
The record will soon lie made. We should act wisely. We must act 
speedily. 

SUNDAY-SCHOOLS. 

At the last session of this body the Board was instructed to fill the 
vacancy caused by the resignation of Rev. "M. L Kesler, Secretarv of the 
Sunday-School and Colportage Department. 

At a meeting, December 15, 1891, the Board elected Rev. W. B. "SIov- 
lon, of Weldon, to fill said vacancy-. On January 12, 1892, notice was 
given to the Board that Brother Morton declined the position tendered, 
and this work was then committed to the direction of the Co.responding 
Secretarv of the Convention. 



MIXLTKS OF THE 



EXTRA WORK. 



The extra work in securing the needed funds for the Havana House, 
the |2,ooo debt on State Missions, and the additional work occasioned 
b%' the Centennial of Missions, all put on the Corresponding Secretary, 
made it almost impossible for him, in the condition of this department 
at that time, to give the needed attention to Sunda\'-Schools, Colportage, 
and the Supply Store. 

NEEDED CAPITAL. 

If the Board had a working capital of five thousand dollars for this 
department, or if the churches and Sunda3--schools contributed to it as 
they do in some other States, or as the\- do in our own State to the other 
objects, the direction of this work would be simple, the influence large, 
and the benefits great and lasting. 

LOCAL HABrr.\TIOX. 

Would it not be possible for the Convention, in this Centennial Year 
of Modern Missions, to provide a local habitation, in fee-simple to its 
Trustees, for its Boards and Supply store? If this should be done, then 
instead of the expense of renting, there might be an income to the Sun- 
dav-school department for all time to come in the history of our work. 

To this subject we ask the serious attention of the Convention. The 
advantages would be many. 

PrBLIC.\TIOXS. 

The twelfth article of our constitution says: " The Board of Missions 
and Sunday-schools shall * * * co-operate with all Mission and Sun- 
day-school work of the Southern Baptist Convention." 

At the last session of this body it was ''Resolved, That this Conven- 
tion will co-operate heartih- with the Sunday-school Board of the South- 
ern Baptist Convention in all of its departments of work." 

The results of the year's work show how faithfully the Board has 
obeyed the constitutional instruction, and how successfully the brethren 
have carried out this resolution. 

About three-fourths of the Sundaj'-schools in our Convention now use 
the "Southern Baptist Convention Series" of Sunday-school publica- 
tions. This is a very large gain over last year for this series, and shows 
the appreciation of our schools for the series that best meets their needs. 



P.AITIST STATE CONVENTION. 31 

SUPPLY STORE. 

This store was established by order of tlie Convention at its session in 
Winston in i8Si. One thousand dollars were then subscribed, to be 
paid during the next year, as a working capital for the store. At the 
next Convention the report of the Sunday-school Board stated that only 
I273.60 of the |i,ooo subscribed the year before, had been paid. The 
store was established for the benefit of our general denominational work. 
During the ten years of its work 855 indigent schools have been aided, 
and through its aid 821 new schools organized. The donations from it 
have been $3,769.56, and its business for the ten years has amounted to 
167,180.93. 

No department of our denominational work has brought larger returns 
in profitable results, in proportion to the investments made, and before 
no one of them are such unlimited opportunities for enlarg-:d usefulness 
with a reasonable working capital.

The al:)Ove coinparative statements show the improved condition of 
this department during the past year. This is specially gratifying when 
it is remembered that very little colportage work has been done, and, 
consequent upon moving from Hargett to Fayetteville street, the store 
was necessarily at considerable extra expense. The former lessening 
the income of the store and the latter increasing the expenses. 

RECOMMEND,\TION. 

We recommend that the Board of Missions and Sunday-schools be 
directed to secure, if possible, five thousand dollars as a working capital 
for the Supply Store, and, in addition thereto, a local habitation for the 
Store and the Boards, in fee-simple to the trustees— the object being to 
enlarge the Sunday-school and colportage work of this Convention. 



MINUTES OF THE 



COLPORTAGE 



It would be wise to have an intelligent, active and consecrated Col- 
porter at work, for his entire time, within the territory of each Association 
in the Convention. Many families are without Bibles. Thousands of 
Baptist families are almost entirely destitute of good books. These 
should be visited and supplied by Colporters. We should seek to supplj' 
the homes of our people with Bibles, denominational, mission and gen- 
eral religious books and tracts. The home life of thousands of them 
can be elevated by the introduction of good books and tracts. The gen- 
eral denominational life will not go far in advance of the home life of 
any people. If we can stir the minds of the boys and girls in their 
homes towards large and better things we shall fill our academies and 
colleges. The horizon widens. The possibilities enlarge. The future 
would be radiant. Then, too, there are few fields which open such large 
opoortunities to soul-winners. Here the work is limited only by the 
ability and tact of the Colportcr. 

Colportage must plant the seed largely in uncultivated soil, prepare 
the way, gather the congregation, and make ready a people to hear the 
gospel. This work, too, will greatly aid the people where churches are 
alreadv established. The cultivation of our own waste places and the 
distribution of proper information among* our church members will 
enable us to extend our efforts to more distant and barren fields. 

Success in Colportage work is a sure pledge of enlarged ability to sup- 
port all of our missionary and benevolent enterjirises at home and abroad.

CONCIA'SIOX. 



The peri 111 in wiiuh we live, and the time now in sii^hi, jr.sl ahead 
of us, seem designedly prepared for great results. We may not be able 
to discover the providential designs of our Gorl in all things, l)Ut of His 
design in opening the nations to the gospel and in giving to his people 



HAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 33 

the abilit)-, the opportunity and the determination to send the message 
of salvation to all the world we need be in no doubt. The providen- 
tial pre-arrangement of the nations in each great era has marked the 
steps of God in the preparation of the world for the unfolding of His 
predestinated purpose to save sinners through the knowledge of His Son. 

Upon your Board of thirty brethren in and near Raleigh, so as to 
secure a quorum in all meetings, at the least possible expense to the mem- 
bers, and an additional member from each Asssciation connected with 
the Convention, you have, from year to year, placed great, diflicult and 
delicate responsibilities. At the close of another year, we, therefore, 
put into your hands, and at our Master's feet, this imperfect record of 
your work. It is not all that we desired it to be, but it is the best we 
have been able to do. Our earnest purpose as your servants, has been 
to be faithful, in meeting as wisely as we knew how, the many needs of 
the denomination; and to so conduct every department of work committed 
to our hands, as to secure the largest and best results and the continued 
approval of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

J. C. SCARBOROUGH, 

C. DURHAM, President. 

Correspotiding Secretary. 

J. M. Frost, of Nashville, Tenn., addressed the Conven-

Brazil, W. D. Powell, Missionary to Mexico, and D. W. 
Herring, returiied Missionary to China. 

The Committee on Order of Business requested to add 
to their report the following: "That committees be 
appointed to nominate Board of Education, and to nomi- 
nate Board of Missions and Sunday Schools, and that the 
Chair appoint committees on Religious Exercises and 
Obituaries." The request was unanimously granted, and 
the President nominated the following committees:

A. Brown, of Winston. 



Friday Evening. 

The Convention re-assembled at 7 o'clock. President in 
the chair, and was opened with prayer by A. J. S. Thomas, 
of South Carolina. 

The report on Ministerial Education was read by W. R. 
Gwaltney, of Wake Forest, as follows: 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

One of the primary objects of this Convention, as stated in the 2ud 
article of the Constitution, is to educate young men called of God to 
the ministry, and approved by the churches to which they belong. 

And the nth article says: "The Education Board shall, so far as it 
maybe able, assist promising and indigent young ministers seeking to 
prepare themselves for the more efficient preaching of the gospel." 

During all the history of the College, this Board has done most 
efficiently the work for which it was established. Hundreds of minis- 
ters have been aided and have gone forth doing their work nobly. It 
is largely by these men that the destitution in our State is being sup- 
plied; our strongest pulpits are being filled, and by some of them the 
gospel is being preached in the regions beyon<l — nine in China and one 
in Africa. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 35 

The marvelous growth of the Baptists in North Carolina, and our 
unparalleled prosperity as a denomination is due in no small measure to 
those who were once our beneficiaries. No agency of this Convention has 
done so much to give us prestige and power with the people. Last 
session forty-two young men received help. Seven of this number grad- 
uated in June. Several of the seven, and others besides them, are now 
at the Theological Seminary, and others have entered fields of labor 
and are doing excellent work. 

Brother A. T. Denny, of Person county, who would have graduated 
in June, a young minister full of promise, was taken from us in Sep- 
tember by death, in the 24th year of his age. 

The Board is aiding thirty-seven the present session, and at least 
forty more are earnestly asking aid. Two who are now at the College 
will have to leave by Christmas if assistance cannot be rendered them; 
but with the present income of the Board we do not see the way open 
to increase the number. Brethren, what shall we say to them? Shall 
we leave them to do the work the Master has given them with little or no 
mental training? What must we do? Shall we stand still or go forward? 
Does not the Lord say to us: " Go forward," by the large numbers He is 
calling to preach His gospel? In other words, as the number whom God 
is calling is so rapidly increasing, has not the time come for us to 
enlarge this work, and shall we not begin now? 

We are compelled to report a debt of about three hundred and forty 
dollars (|;340.oo). Our financial report is as follows: 

In the hands of J. D. Boushall, as shown by his report last year--! 801.99 
Received during the year 2,842.17 

Total 13,644.16 

Paid out 3,634.04 

Balance on hand 10.12 

Since our last Convention two of the most active members of the 
Board have been called to their reward, Dr. A. R. Vann and Prof. E. 
G. Beckwith. From faithful toil they have entered upon their rest. 

W. R. GWALTNEY, Cor. Sec. 
These accounts have been examined and found correct. 

JOHN M. BREWER, Auditor. 

After remarks on the report by W. R. Gwaltiiey, he 
introduced Wm. E. Hatcher, of Richmond, Va., who 
addressed the Convention on the "Human Element of the 
Ministerial Call," after which a collection was taken up, 
which amounted to $530 in pledges, to be redeemed by or 
before the first of next June. 



36 MINUTES OF THE 

A. T. Robertson, representing the Seminary, then 
addressed the audience on "Theological Education as con- 
ducted at our Seminary," and a cash collection was taken 
up amounting to $500. 

The Convention adjourned with benediction by W. D. 
Powell, of ^Mexico. 



THIRD DAY— MoRxiNCx Session. 

Saturday, Dec. 10, 1892. 

Interesting religious services were conducted by F. M. 
Ellis, pastor of Eutaw Baptist Church, Baltimore, Md., 
after which the Convention was called to order, and a 
number of additional delegates reported. 

F. M. Ellis, representative of Centennial Mission Com- 
mittee, was invited to a seat. 

The committee to nominate the Board of Education 
reported the following:

cash and pledges to be paid in thirty days, :^444.oo. 

The following introduced by R. T. Vann, after being dis- 
cussed by R. T. Vann, T. T. Speight, J. C. Scarborough 
and J. D. Hufham, was passed.

lip the report of the Board relating to the 

CENTENNIAL OF MISSIONS. 

The subject was very ably presented by F. M. Ellis, of 
Baltimore, and W. D. Powell, of Mexico; after which a 



38 MINUTES OF THE 

collection was raised, amounting to $6,980 in cash and 
pledges and a gold watch. 

Convention then adjourned with benediction by W. D,

SATURDAY EVENING. 

Convention met at 7:30 P. M., and was opened with 
prayer by J. B. Harrell, of Elizabeth City. 

Eugene Daniel, pastor of First Presbyterian Church in 
Raleigh, being present, was invited to a seat. 

On motion of C. Durham, the special order was sus- 
pended for 30 minutes, that the Convention might con- 
sider the report of the Ministers' Relief Board. The 
report not being in the house, the claims of the Board to 
the support of the denomination were presented by Henry 
A. Reams and W. A. Allbright, both of Durham. 

The Committee on the Orphanage then submitted the 
following report: 

To care for the orphans is one of the highest duties of the denomina- 
tion. We have an Orphanage near Thomasville, including a valuable 
farm, with buildings sufficient to accommodate 125 children. 

It gives us pleasure to mention that a legacy was recently left by Miss 
Fannie A. Miller, a member of the High Point Church, for the purpose 
of erecting an additional building. 

Every part of the State is represented at the Orphanage, and we cor- 
dially recommend the work to the sympathy and support of the denom- 
ination throughout the State.

C. Durham offered the following as an amendment to 
the report, which was adopted: 

We recommend that each Baptist Church in this State hold a special 
service in their own house of worship on "Thanksgiving Day " of each 
year, and take a collection in cash and kind for our orphanage at Thom-

J. D. BOUSHALL, 
Treasurer Baptist State Convention. 

I hereby certify that I have examined the books of J. D. Boushall, Treasurer of the 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, for the past conventional year, comparing 
the same with the acknowledgments in the Biblical Recorder. I find all accounts with 
the various objects of the Convention to be correct, and disburseiuents supported by 
proper vouchers. W. N. JONES, 

.■iuditor Nortli Carolina Baptist .State Convention. 

On motion of J. D. Hufhani, the special order was sus- 
pended TO minutes to allow him to make a statement of 
Baptist work in Edgecombe county. 

C. Durham read the annual report of Women's Central 
Committee, which was laid upon the table for future con- 
sideration. 

The report of the Board on Home Missions was then 
called up, and the Convention was addressed by J. S. Dill, 
late of California. 

C. Durham read 

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF WAKE FOREST COLLEGE. 

The present endowment is about I185.000. and the Bostwick Fund, 
which is not endowment, is about f 15,000. 

For three months past the President has been relieved of all respon- 
sibilit}' for the internal administration of the College, which has been 
managed by Prof W. L. Poteat. Never has there been better behavior 
and better work in the history of the College than during the present 
session, and never a larger proportion of promising young men at the 
Institution. The number of .students for the session iSgo'gi was 233, 
and the number for i892-'93 is now 185, and not likely to be more than 
200. This decrease may, in part, be accounted for by the short crops, 
low prices, and consequent financial stress of our people; but, after due 
consideration, it is believed the decrease is due largely to the sharp com- 
petition by the State University. • 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 45 

The requireineuts for admission and graduation in the A. B. course are 
practically the same in both institutions. 

This, with the large number of free scholarships provided, not by tax- 
ation, but by donation, extensively offered, and to which we cannot and 
do not object, but, on the contrary, rejoice in when properly used, makes 
the competition more serious at preserrt than in former years. 

Since the founding and organization of Wake Forest College, in 1834. 
it has had a continued but successful struggle for enlarged usefulness, 
and it now behooves its friends, as perhaps never before, to be wide 
awake and eagle-eyed that they may meet most wisely and overcome 
most successfully all influences which diminish or endanger its patron- 
age, and to project and execute such plans as will build up and enlarge 
the influence and usefulness of this, our beloved Institution. 

C. DURHAM, 
Chairman of Committee. 

The report was discussed at considerable length by 
Chas. E. Taylor, T. Hume, J. D. Hufham, J. L. Carroll, 
W. R. Gwaltney, T. M. Pittman, C. S. Blackwell, J. 
W. Carter and J. M. Heck. 

Pending a motion to amend the report, R. T. Vaun 
called for the previous question, and the report was 
adopted.

rary absence of the President and both Vice-Presidents,

The report of Trustees of Baptist Female University 
was read, and after discussion by T. H. Pritchard, Thomas 
Hume, J. B. Boone, L. G. Broughton, T. E. Skinner, J. 
C. Scarborough and others, was adopted as follows: 

BAPTLST FEMALE UNIVP;RSITY. 

The work toward the establishment of the Baptist Female University 
of North Carolina, has progressed this far: A site, consisting of about 
two acres of land has been purchased for the location of the University, 
lying on Edenton, Blount and Person streets, in the City of Raleigh, at 



BAPTIST STATK CONVENTION. 47 

a cost of ;f 14, 100. The entire purchase price of said location has been 
paid except 1^3,000, which falls due on the first of June, 1893. There are 
;good subscriptions falling due January i, 1S93, fully sufficient to meet 
the above-mentioued obligation, with what we have in hand in cash. 
The property purchased yields a yearly income of |6io. The University 
also has a deed to a farm in Wake County of 150 acres, worth |6oo 

The Trustees, after fully considering the matters pertaining to the Uni- 
A'ersity, have unanimously decided that the Executive Committee of the 
Board of Trustees press the work for the establishment of the University 
with unremitting diligence. In doing so they are authorized to employ 
such agencies as they deem best. 

The annual report of the Woman's Central Committee 
of iSIissions was taken from the table and read as follows: 

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S CENTRAL COMMITTEE 
OF MISSIONS. 

The Central Committee is happy to report progress in all lines of its 
work. 

Beginning with the Centennial year, The Woman's Missionary Socie- 
ties, more generally than ever before, took part in the Christmas Offer- 
ingto North China, increasing their gift of the 3'ear previous four fold. 

Before the Centennial year had fairly begun the plans for it had been 
laid before each society, and up to date 2,200 Centennial Fund Chapel 
Cards have been distributed. 

During the summer an effort was made to call the attention of the 
Sunday-school Superintendents to the importance of organizing Sunday- 
school Missionary Societies. For this purpose a letter was sent to each 
Superintendent in the State, with the offer to aid by sending free litera- 
ture, &c. To these offers there have been few responses. 

vSeeking to aid the Centennial movement, we also, in a personal letter 
to every pastor, offered to send a monthly package of free literature to 
a faithful, energetic woman who would distribute it in each church. 
More than four hundred names have been sent us, and we have sent out 
44,000 leaflets to these churches. 

Besides this the monthly publication of the Missionary Talk, for dis- 
tribution among the societies, has been maintained, 14,400 having been 
sent out. 

Much literature has been supplied by the Woman's Mission Union for 
free distriburion. 

Letters written and literature distributed as follows:

F. M. Ellis spoke ior 10 minutes on the work of Woman 
in Missions. 

The following resolution was offered and adopted: 

Resolved, That we express our gratification and thankfulness to God, 
in view of the inspiring report of the progress by the Central Committee 
of Woman's Mission Societies to this Convention. That we record our 
deep appreciation of the help they thus bring to every branch of our 
work and bid them God speed in their holy undertaking. 

The following report on periodicals was submitted and 
adopted : 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 49 

REPORT ON ^PERIODICALS. 

We cannot overestimate the value and importance of a denomina- 
tional organ. It is the medium through which the Baptist homes and 
churches must be reached. It is the vehicle for the dissemination of 
Baptist doctrine and religious literature. It is the means for conveying 
general and denominational information. It unifies our people and 
concentrates our forces. We are to be congratulated that we have such 
an excellent .Slate paper. The Biblical Recorder for a half century has 
faithfully and efficiently served us as our State organ, and we most 
heartily commend it to the confidence and patronage of our people, and 
suggest that pastors endeavor to enlarge its circulation in all our 
churches. The Foreign Missio?i Journal and Home Field are very 
important agencies for arousing a deeper and wider interest in the mis- 
sion work, and should be wideh' circulated in all our churches. 
Charity and Children is intended to keep our people informed about 
our Orphanage and in thorough sympathy with this Institution, so dear 
to our people. The Wake Forest Student is one of the best college 
journals in the South. It is an honor to the Institution. Besides con- 
taining much valuable literature, it conveys much interesting news and 
information about the College which every Baptist ought to know. 

RUFUS FORD, 
For the Committee. 

The following report was submitted and adopted with 
the report on periodicals: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON INCREASE OF CIRCULATION OF 
BIBLICAL RECORDER. 

Your committee appointed at Goldsboro last year with instructions 
to examine and report upon the best means of increasing the circulation 
of the Recorder, and as to whether the subscription price could be 
reduced without injury to the standard of the paper, respectfully report 
that through the courtesy of the editor we have had the opportunity to 
examine the subscription and advertising lists, and the income and 
expenditures of the editor in publishing the paper, and it is the opinion 
of your committee, after an examination of the books, etc., above 
named, and from such other information as now received, that the price 
of the paper, with its present amount of advertising and reading matter 
and circulation, cannot be reduced and give to the editor the proper 
return for the labor and capital invested in the enterprise. We believe 
that the hearty co-operation of the pastors of the churches, as recom- 



50 MINUTES OF THE 

mended in the Report on Periodicals, is the most effective means of 

increasing the circulation of the Recorder. 

Respectfully submitted.

WORK AMONG THE COLORED PEOPLE. 

The following resolutions, offered by T. J. Taylor, were 
unanimously adopted, after addresses by Professors Smith 
and Pegues, of Shaw University, and statements by T. J. 
Taylor and others concerning the work: 

Where.^s, The Institutes held during the past Summer for the purpose 
of training colored preachers seem to have done much good; therefore 

Resolved, That we instruct the Board of Missions to continue the 
work, and, if possible, enlarge it; that the churches connected with this 
Convention are hereby requested to take one collection during this con- 
ventional year for this work. 

Pending the motion to adopt, a collection was taken up 
amounting to $53.29 for the work among the colored 
people. 

The report of the Ministers' Relief Board was read and 
adopted as follows: 

REPORT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST MINISTERS' 
RELIEF BOARD. 

At the first meeting of your Board after the last session of the Con- 
vention the former officers were re-elected, with the exception of the 
Treasurer, Bro. Jno. L. Markham, who, owing to a press of business 
engagements, resigned, and T. E. Cheek was elected in his place. Near 
the commencement of the present year, Rev. J. L. White, President of 
the Board, received and accepted a call to Asheville, N. C. This neces-- 
sitated his resignation, and Col. W. .A. Albright was elected by the Board 
to fill his place. 

BEXEI-ICIARIE.S. 

Since the last session of the Convention two of our beneficiaries have 
<lied, vi/.., Rev. Jas. A. Broomfield, of Gastonia, and Rev. W. C. Owen, 
of Waxhaw, N. C. It was a source of great jo\ to the Board, and will 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 51 

be to those who have contributed to our funds, to know that we were 
able, by our appropriations, to lighten the burdens and lessen the cares 
of these aged soldiers of Christ whilst the}' lingered here, waiting for 
their summons from the Master "to come up higher." Their death 
should stimulate within us a tenderer regard for those who survive them. 
Since their death, we have on our list nine brethren and three sisters. 
The widow of Rev. W. C. Owen, deceased, has made application to be 
received as a beneficiary of the Board, and as soon as her application is 
returned, properly endorsed, we will pass on her case. Your Board has 
been careful as to the reception of beneficiaries. The list of names 
might have been larger, but for the care used. We ask, however, to be 
informed of an)' who are worthy of the help we aim to give. In this 
the pastors and churches can aid us. Though we now have only twelve 
on our list, it is to be remembered that the wives of nearly all of the 
aged brethren we are assisting are still alive, and one or two of the 
widows we are aiding have helpless families to care for, so that we are 
aiding a larger number than the list indicates. 

FINANCK.S. 

Your attention is called to the accompanying report of our Treasurer 
for a detailed statement of receipts and disbursements through the year. 
It will be sufficient here to say that our total receipts, during the year, 
have amounted to $633.04. We have paid during the year to our benefi- 
ciaries $555 ; for postage, etc. , $5 ; traveling expenses of Corresponding Sec- 
retary ^27 18; leaving, with the amount carried over from last year, a 
permanent interest-bearing fund of I453.37. 

When it is remembered that we place one-third of all receipts in the 
Permanent Fund, it will be seen that we have but a small amount on 
hand for immediate use, and we are thus under the necessity of look- 
ing, as heretofore, to our brethren and sisters throughout the State for 
the funds we need to continue efficienth- the beneficent work in which 
we are engaged. 

OTHER F.\CTS. 

We cheerfully invite a rigid scrutiny on the part of the Convention 
of our methods and plans. Anyone not well informed on this subject, 
can get such information promptly by writing to our Corresponding Sec- 
retar}'. It affords us much pleasure to state that it is evident that pas- 
tors, churches and Associations, all over the State, are becoming more 
deepl}' interested in our work; and a much larger number have contrib- 
uted to our funds during this year than during the past year. We highly 
appreciate the hearty endorsement of the Convention; but, above all, 
we are cheered b}- the manifest tokens of the Lord's blessing upon our 
work. Looking to Him for a continuance of His favor, and cheered by

* These contributions come from twenty-nine Associations in the North Carolina 
Baptist State Convention and six Associations in Western Baptist Conventiou. No 
full report received from the other twenty-four white Associations in time for these 
Minutes.— N. B. Cobb. 



Note. -The Secretaries have made an earnest effort to collect the latest statistics of 
all the white Baptist Churches in the bounds of the Convention, with a list of the offi- 
cers, post-office addresses, and full statistics of each. ^^L that end bl^nk forms have 
been printed and sent out to each Clerk of the Associa^^s. Up to the present date 
leturns have come in for the present year from only twent3' of the fifty-eight white 
Baptist Associations in the State, and we have been compelled to rely upon the Min- 
utes of 1891 for the figures from the others 

The coft't of printing these tables in full will add so much to the expense of the Min- 
utes that the Secretaries do not feel authorized to insert them, without instructions 
from the Convention. The summary of the Baptists in the State, as given above, is, 
therefore, less than the actual number for 1892. N B. C.
